I just picked up a set from Autozone and they're fine

Driver - 26
Passenger - 18

Dealer wanted to charge me $90 for replacement blades... Tried to buy a pair when I drove off the lot with the car because I knew the ones on the car had sat through a season of ice without being properly cared for, and as I thought, they were absolutely destroyed.

Just my $.02 worth.

Do you guys believe in the "no pressure point" blades? Are there any blades that you guys use or think is better than another? We don't have heating elements or anything in ours that I know of right? Any suggestions for long use, non streaking, etc...? I know most people don't really think about them but they are important because they are what helps you see lol.

Funny, as I just told the wife last night we need to change the Cadenza's blades as they are streaking bad.

I have a set of Goodyear beam type blades on my other car, and they seem to perform OK. They just started streaking, so I think they lasted me about a year. I personally like the beam type designs better as they prevent ice/debris from building up.

I'm going to pull the trigger on a set of Rain-X Latitude for the Cadenza, will report back once installed.

I noticed on my OEM wipers that there was a grease streak forming at eye level.. I used mineral spirits to clean the window and wiper... worked well for a while but ended up buying new Bosch replacements.

I have the Rain-X Latitude. I replaced the OEM a year ago when I bought the Cadenza and I'm not impressed with the Rain-X. The driver side streaks like there is oil on the windshield, but there's not. I have them on my other vehicles and don't have any problems.

I bought a set of the Rain-X Latitude, and they aren't that great... I've had them a week and they're streaking already.

I think I'll pick up a set of Bosch and see if they're any better. Believe it or not, the cheap ones from Valvoline are still the best I have ever had. If these Bosch ones streak, I will have to make a stop by one.
